Change in fire recourse arrangement per 2014

VKNQESL6In The Netherlands the property insurer of a third party can recover a payment from a company, in case that company is held responsible for the fire damage. Until 2013 the maximum amount was € 500.000. Since 2014 there is no longer a limited amount. This means companies can be exposed to unlimited claims from property insurers.

An unlimited claim from a property insurer is possible in case of inaccurate acts or neglect. Our advice to companies is to check the cover of the liability insurance and to increase the insured sum of the liability insurance to at least € 2.500.000 per occurance.
